Tray: simplify force-redraw, use code that actually works
Browse files Browse the repository at this point in the history
Prevent most corruption of tray icons and reduce by half incomplete rendering of them, replace a never-built code block that could not be built, and replace (deprecated) direct expose handling with gtk_widget_hide/gtk_widget_show_all

*Note that this is needed for GTK 3.23 but may help remaining icon issues with GTK 3.22 as well and is simpler code in any case
